Microneedling, medically known as collagen induction therapy, is a safe, simple, minimal downtime treatment for fine lines, acne scarring, large pores, overall skin tone and texture, and stretch marks. This technology provides an innovative way to increase the radiance of your skin and youthfulness of your face, neck, and chest area. It can also dramatically boost the absorption of topical skin care products.
How It Works
A microneedling procedure is perfect for anyone who is looking to enhance the health and appearance of their skin without resorting to surgery and the complications and downtime sometimes associated with it. The procedure creates thousands of micro-channels in your skin by making a series of microscopic channels in the outer layer, stimulating the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers. After your needling treatment, growth factors will flood your skin and promote increased healing and rapid skin rejuvenation.
What It Treats
Microneedling treats an extremely wide range of skin problems like fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dull skin, rough skin texture, melasma, rosacea, stretch marks, and scars caused by acne, injury, or surgery.
Some patience will be required to notice your results, since we are working with the innate healing abilities of your own body, which takes time. Microneedling results have a reputation of appearing quite soft and natural in contrast to some types of cosmetic surgery that may seem drastic or lead to results that appear unnatural.
Boosts Product Absorption
Many topical skin care products are hampered by the fact that the skin possesses an outer barrier called the stratum corneum. You may not realize it, but the very top layer of your skin is a collection of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris. This material normally sloughs off and is replaced by living skin tissue that pushes up from beneath. But in some people this skin layer can grow extremely thick and block the absorption of topical products.
The thousands of micro-channels created by the microneedling treatment process allow topical products like lotions, creams, serums, ointments, and gels to completely bypass the stratum corneum barrier, rendering them many times more effective than they are normally. If you want to get the most out of your topical skin care products, try combining their application with a needling treatment.
Benefits of Multiple Treatments
Unless you have extremely light, superficial skin problems, you would probably benefit from multiple microneedling treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. Each successive needling session builds upon the results of previous ones. Its cumulative results are one of the aspects that makes microneedling so appealing as a skin rejuvenation treatment.
